Come reimagine energy and dance the night away at Sundown

Editor’s Note: We’re heating up July evenings with our fourth edition of the Sundown at Ecotrust Concert Series, hosted right here at our Natural Capital Center in the Pearl District. These free outdoor concerts celebrate the intersection of music, green living, and community wellbeing. Musical performances will be complemented by an Innovation Showcase of over 40 organizations.

Umpqua Bank and Ecotrust are excited to welcome the Portland Cello Project with Adam Shearer tomorrow evening (Wednesday, July 17) as we continue the 2013 Sundown series. Join us from 5:30pm-8:30pm for an all-ages dance party and learn more about the night’s theme of Reimagining ENERGY.

The “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by PDX Kids Calendar, will have art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Cold frothy beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza, Laughing Planet, and Coconut Bliss. Described as a farmers market of ideas, our street fair-style exhibition features an inspiring array of nonprofits, businesses, government agencies, and educational institutions who are delivering inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprises. Bike commuters will be rewarded with a free bike valet on-site.
